(BBSRC DTP) Dynamics of neurogenesis during spinal cord regeneration

About 1200 people a year are left paralysed in the UK due to a Spinal Cord Injury (or SCI). This is because injuries involving the central nervous system (CNS) have poor capacity to repair or regenerate, thus resulting in a permanent loss of function. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Defining the roles of mRNA methylation in circadian physiology and inflammation

Methylation is a pervasive biochemical modification targeting virtually all types of molecules in our cells. A key metabolic pathway called the “methyl cycle” synthesises S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), the methyl donor co-substrate used by over 200 substrate-specific methyltransferases described so far in humans.

(MRC DTP) Unravelling the role of microglial interleukin-1alpha on neuronal activity and functions during cerebrovascular inflammation after stroke

Interleukin-1 (IL-1) drives inflammation after stroke, contributing to brain damage and poorer outcome. Blocking IL-1 actions with the IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) is beneficial in pre-clinical stroke models, and studies in stroke patients show that IL-1Ra is safe and may improve clinical outcomes.

(BBSRC DTP) Mass spectrometry imaging of inflammatory change

Inflammation is a complex response to variety of stimuli. It is critical to fighting infection, handling trauma to tissues and is central to progression and outcome of a wide range of important conditions including stroke, cancer and brain conditions such as stroke or Alzheimer’s disease.

(BBSRC DTP) Remembrance of things past: Understanding the role of the environment in shaping microglia development

The ability to think, feel and create relies on the precise regulation of cortical circuit assembly during brain development. Circuits formed during development are reflections of the complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors. Read more

Classification and Regression of Electroencephalography (EEG) Data (BAGNALLA_U22SCIO)

Electroencephalography (EEG) records electrical activity in the brain using a series electrodes placed on the scalp. EEG equipment is relatively cheap and portable and is currently one of the most widely used non-invasive brain imaging tools in neuroscience and in the clinic. Read more

Determining the neural architecture of vocal learning in bats to shed light on human speech and language

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
In speech acquisition, humans must employ vocal learning, making this a key trait for the understanding of the biology and evolution of speech and language. Read more

Genetic manipulations in bats: using transgenic bats to understand vocal learning and language

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
In speech acquisition, humans must employ vocal learning, making this a key trait for the understanding of the biology and evolution of speech and language. Read more

Genes for new species; the genetics of sexual isolation in Drosophila

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Genetic changes associated with the origin of species are relatively poorly understood, especially at the molecular level. Key changes in speciation involve sexual isolation; changes in processes that lead to successful fertilisation of gametes. Read more
